Hey friends! We are so excited to join a group of talented bloggers for the Spring Ideas Tour hosted by Paula at Sweet Pea! The tour will run all week with a new category each day. Fireplace mantels on Monday, tablescapes on Tuesday, DIYs on Wednesday (that’s us), porches and decks on Thursday, and recipes on Friday! Please check back here every day this week to see what’s new! Today we’re sharing our DIY Spring Easter Clothespin Wreath Tutorial.
As soon as the Spring season approaches, we think of greenery, pastel colors and bunnies. What could be more cheerful than that? If you have followed us for any length of time, you’ve heard me mention my BFF, Bambi, many times. Her amazing home is located in the strawberry capital of the world. Recently, she sent me this photo of her beautiful strawberry-themed wreath that she made herself. I honestly don’t know what rock that I was living under, that I had never heard of a clothespin wreath. Shame on me. Bambi shared the details, while assuring me that this is a simple craft.
I decided to create one with a spring and Easter theme for my front door.
- round wire wreath – mine is from the Dollar Tree
- clothespin – approximately 72 – also found at Dollar Tree
- spray paint in favorite spring color
- ribbon for a bow
- lightweight nest
- craft wire for the bow and for attaching the nest
- Gather all of the above supplies
- Lightly spray paint the clothespins and the wire wreath form. Let dry completely (a few minutes)
- Spray paint another light coat on the wire frame and clothespins. Let dry completely.
- Begin adding clothespins to the wire frame. Alternate the pins on the top row of the form and the third row of the form. (see above graphic)
- When the frame is completely filled, add a bow of choice.
- Use craft wire to attach the bow and the nest
Here is how my clothespin wreath looked halfway through pinning.
I love the bold pattern of buffalo check. This ribbon was leftover from the DIY Buffalo Check Bubble Wreath I crafted.
Next, I grabbed this cute nest from my spring decor box. Don’t you just love speckled eggs? The threaded moss is so soft and pretty in this nest.
Aqua looks so bright and cheerful for spring. It pairs beautifully with the front door.
We hope that you have been inspired by our spring easter clothespins wreath. Will you be making on too?
